The People's Republic of West Kirkon is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 9.761 billion West Kirkonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orlavo. The average income tax rate is 91.7%.

The powerhouse West Kirkonian economy, worth 882 trillion Clantons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 90,380 Clantons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, West Kirkonian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, and people invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Kirkon's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No National Religion Recognized.

West Kirkon is ranked 38,630th in the world and 21st in Kylaris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 150.2 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
